A Short Story
I can imagine Hank's mom overriding his GPS, "You're lost, aren't you? You should've turned left two blocks ago, like I said."
This was a great story, John! I wasn't ready for that AI bit at the end. And I tracked the footnotes to see how you applied your Alexie analysis to your work - very cool! Do you this "analyze and apply" in your day job? Assuming that your day job isn't fiction writing, but I'd be happy to be corrected!
I’m glad the twist worked for you and I really appreciate you speaking up to let me know that you enjoyed it. Thanks again.
I really enjoyed the story (and didn’t pay attention to the structure until after). Just when I thought I knew how this was going to play out, the story changed. I guess in these AI times, Mom doesn’t have to be just a permanently critical voice in your head! Great read!
What a cool idea; really enjoyed this.
